No matter, either way, I can rework the in out.. im gonna need to put in some more 90s which im not happy about. or buy a rotary snake, but ive always thought the snakes are ugly af. nothing is easy..
I have the fan mount kit and it looks really nice. I haven't drained my loop yet to add the reservoir, but I've mounted it on the outside of my front radiator just to see how good the dampening is. And it seems to be more quiet than my EK res/pump D5 combo. This was with a different D5 pump, so I will see what happens once I put the other D5 in it that's PWM controlled.
But I guess the rubber dampers are better and the extra weight of the reservoir should also help taming down vibrations.

As for the tubes, I'm not really a fan using fittings to make bends. They are good to use at the beginning or end of run, but in between the fittings, I like bend tubing a lot more. It's just 1 flowing piece then. And because the radius is smoother, it will have less impact on performance.

Yeah man the shipping from Watercool is a killer.. It costs around $60 AUD to ship to Australia. Hefty as.

It can be very tricky trying to find the neatest way to route your tubes, I spent a pretty long time testing and measuring for my Fractal Define S2 build I completed just recently, in order to make sure all the bends would be right angles. I ended up having to spend another $100 in fittings on top of what I already purchased to make it work. Sadly things almost never go to plan and I find you always need more than you originally purchase.

yes.. this will be my 10th+ order for something else.. Ive bought fittings about 5 times so far.. could be more, really. modmymods.com is in the city where i live, so it makes it easy to go pick up more parts in person.. assuming they have it in stock.. mostly they do but sometimes i have to wait for PPCs

Lucky you, it is a bit different than you have to order different parts from all around the world and wait a month on average for a part to arrive, or start being very creative to use that you have.

ok so if i keep the same line setup but change where the lines go at the in/out ports at the pump, it will reverse the flow of the system, pushing water through the proper in/out of each block. See Diagram!

However, i am a little curious about the flow sequence.. Pump > Long Vertical > Rad 1 - XE360 > Rad 2 - HWLabs Slim > VRM > EK Velocity CPU > EK Vector GPU > Flow Meter > Pump

probably doesnt matter much but i was trying to avoid sending water from the hot cpu to the gpu.. or having the gpu be last.. maybe its better this way, though

Don't worry. The water will only warm up 0.3-0.6°C in the CPU block during gaming.

Same haha, I'm in Australia and hardly anything watercooling related is sold here. I've been ordering from all around the world too, that's why I'm only getting to start the project now after waiting around 4 months+.

Yep that looks good to me. As Broodrooster said it won't be an issue. The loop order doesn't really matter, the temp differences within the loop are so small you could run your components in any order and it would give you pretty much the same results. When I run my D5 pump at full speed while the system is under load the temp difference on the hot and cold side of the rads is usually 1 degree or less from memory.

yeah im just lazy.. modmymods is funny though..
1. they run out of stuff all the time and it takes a month or more for them to get it back in stock
2. even though we are in the same city, per se, it sill takes about over an hour of driving to make a trip.. then, when i get there, I end up talking to them for another hour or so.. and then by the time i get home, my night is almost over and i have to go to sleep for work the next day. they arent open on weekends, when i have more free time
3. in case you didnt know, modmymods is a company that was started by disgruntled employees of FrozenCPU.com .. theyre great guys though.. its just that, theyre still a young company.. that has some limitations in terms of stock, offerings, product lines, etc.
4. Since they are in my same state (New York), I have to pay tax on the items. If I order from online other places, PPCs for example, I do not pay tax

I know, kit's not like you guys who live in places with such limited options.. but.. Im in the US, and compared to what is typical, it's not the best. Its nice theyre local so if all else fails I *can* drive there during the week.. but im still gonna complain about it lol (damm spoiled americans )

If I did a double 90 on each, the bottom one would be too low and obstruct the OLED screen of the pump (picture 1)
If I use an extension on the left port to come straight out, then put a 90, I can go around the other line (picture 2). However, I’m not a fan of the line going from GPU to pump, as it blocks the “RTX 2080 Ti” text on the Vector block. It’s not the end of the world but I’m a perfectionist so will need to find a different solution. I’ll update as I do.

Side note: been thinking of starting a build log in a different subforum. If I do I’ll let you know.

So I added a 3way on the outlet of the second rad (side) and will use the 3rd port for a temp probe (see photo). This is nice because the wire for the probe can be easily threaded through the grommet and into the rear chamber.

In other news, I decided to move the position of the flow meter.. moving it to the horizontal line between the VRM inlet and side rad outlet (after the 3way; see photo). Instead of using fittings/extensions for this I’m gonna try to use as much actual tubing as possible. But I’m the photo you can get an idea of where it will be. It’s basically gonna be centered on the 4 DRAM sticks. Only thing is, since the flow meter has a temp probe, the one I put in at the 3way right before it is sort of redundant now. We’ll see. I just felt like having he flow meter at the bottom, between the GPU and pump/res was too cluttered .. I didn’t want it to obstruct the “RTX 2080 Ti” writing, obstruct my sleeved pcie cables, etc.
So.. idk... this is where I’m at. I’m getting close.
